Congratulations to the Arbitration Team!

 

Congratulations to Samantha Thomas-Bush, Brandon Edwards, Megan Keane and Aaron Price for a very successful performance at the American Bar Association Arbitration Competition this past weekend!

One of our UofL teams won their first round and the other team was defeated by the second-place overall winners. In both rounds the judges commented on the teams’ excellent preparation and the fact that the competitors were much more advanced than the judges themselves were as students.

Congratulations, and great job!

Academic Success Tip - Recharge Your Study Schedule

Take a close look at your study schedule.  Are you utilizing your free time effectively, especially the time that was once reserved for classes that have now ended, including Basic Legal Skills and Professional Responsibility?  Put this additional free time to good use - review your class notes, finalize your outlines, meet with your professors.  Whatever tasks you need to accomplish in preparation for finals, be sure to take advantage of the time you now have available.

Join us for another Brandeis "Brief" Break

It’s happening here – another “brief” break!!  Students, staff, and faculty are invited to the Mosaic Lobby area, Thursday November 18, for a brief break from their computers and their books.  We’ll have an assortment of cookies to choose from and milk for dipping!  It's the perfect booster to get you through the last few days of the semester.  So please join us anytime between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m., Thursday November 18.  Remember:  Be there or . . . .   

Check ExamTracker 4000 for Status of Exam4 Practice Test

The deadline for submitting a mandatory practice test, if you wish to use your computer for exams this semester, is 11:59 PM, Friday, November 19, 2010. You must identify yourself with your UofL User Name (e.g., EAPRES01) on the practice test for it to be valid.

Students who used Exam4 for the Professional Responsibility exam Friday, November 5, are all set and do NOT have to submit a second practice test. First-year students must download, install and submit a practice test using the new version of Exam4 now available. The version 1Ls used for the Legal Research final and/or the Torts I mid-term has expired and will not run anymore.

If you've submitted a practice test, you can check to see if it was received by looking at ExamTracker (see link below), which is also displayed this week on the hall monitors.

Academic Success Tip - Plan to Meet with Your Professors

Goal:  After each class this week, make a list of questions that you need to ask your professors.  This is the perfect time to organize the areas on which you need help.  By being ready to ask questions by the end of the week, you will avoid the rush on the very last class days and the difficulty of finding professors over the exam period.

U.S. Air Force JAG Information Session

If you would like to learn more about Summer Intern or Full-time JAG opportunities with the U.S. Air Force, please attend the Information Session TODAY, Tuesday, November 16th in the Brandeis Room (112).  Major Bruce Page will be conducting the Information Session from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and students who would like to further discuss career opportunities with the Air Force may do so.  A signup sheet will be posted outside of room 112.

 

NOTICE REGARDING MILITARY RECRUITMENT

In order to conduct job interviews in the law school or to obtain assistance from the Career Services Office, prospective employers must sign a statement of nondiscrimination based on race, color, religion, nationality, gender, disability or sexual orientation.  Federal laws relating to military service preclude representatives of the Armed Forces from signing the nondiscrimination statement in its entirety.  Congress also has enacted a statute, known as the Solomon Amendment, requiring that federal funding -- including several categories of student loans -- be terminated at any educational institution that refuses access to military recruiters.  Therefore, the law school grants access to military recruiters who sign the nondiscrimination statement to the extent consistent with federal law.
